Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

In 2008 I had the worst cramps I have ever experienced. I had struggled with bad cramps and bleeding most of my life. This particular time though was different. I literally felt as if I were in the end stages of having a child. I have had two!

I live rurally and was unable to even get out of bed, so I phoned a nearby neighbor and friend to tell them of my dilemma. They came to my aid bringing with them Clary Sage. Mind you, they had spoken with me about oils before. So I knew of their interest in them, but that was about as far as it went.

Anyway, she asked if I would allow her to rub some Clary Sage on my abdomen as well as my lower back, which I agreed she could do. What I didn't expect was that within 5 minutes all cramping had ceased; there was only a small amount of lower back pain, and I went to sleep like a baby.

The following day I had to pick up one of my grandchildren from school, and I thought I had better use a little bit of that stuff before I left just in case the cramps came back. So I rubbed it on my abdomen and left to pick them up. What I learned at that point is that Clary Sage also worked as a relaxer as well. By the time I got to the school I wanted to lay down and sleep. So if you struggle with insomnia, I think it may help that too!
